Warning: iOS 16.1 Beta Breaking GPS on iPhone 14 Pro Models

The issue that prevented GPS from working properly on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max for many users in the first iOS 16.1 beta has been fixed in the second beta. Updating to the latest beta will restore location accuracy on the device.


Like the Apple Watch Ultra, both iPhone 14 Pro models have dual-frequency GPS support. This means iPhone can receive signals from GPS satellites operating on the older L1 frequency and the higher power L5 frequency, which can travel better through obstacles such as buildings and trees. The combination of the two signals will lead to improved location accuracy in mapping applications and other applications that rely on location.

Apple says iOS 16.1 will be released later this year. The update will enable Live Activity support in third-party apps, introduce a new Clean Energy Charge feature in the United States, add support for Matter accessories in the Home app, make Apple Fitness+ available to iPhone users without an Apple Watch, and more.
